Bond Projects

1 /
 Remodel for Efficiency and Science Modernization (RFE)
This project upgrades and modernizes approximately 30% of LTCC’s original Main Building and is possible thanks to Measure F bond funding and $10 million in state matching funds. Modernizations are complete in the Student Accessibility Services office, the LTCC Promise Program office, and the 2D and 3D art labs. A new fire lane has been constructed around the west side of campus to provide accessibility for emergency services. Construction continues, bringing health and safety improvements to the science labs, upgrades to computer labs and flexible classroom spaces, and modernization of most student support spaces and offices. New faculty offices and collaborative teaching areas will be ready this fall, along with exterior and ADA improvements to the Main Building front entry.
Estimated Completion: Fall 2023
  • Equipment Storage Facility

After 30 years on LTCC’s Master Plan, this storage facility is becoming a reality. This 10,050 sq. ft. prefabricated building will protect district equipment and vehicles from inclement weather, lengthening the useful life of assets used by LTCC’s maintenance department and academic programs.

Estimated Completion: Summer 2023

  • Student Housing

Starting in 2016, Measure F provided for feasibility studies and market research to bring student housing to campus. These early planning efforts allowed LTCC to successfully leverage state funds in the amount of $39.3 million through a competitive grant for shovel-ready student housing projects. This project will provide affordable housing for 100 low-income, full-time students.

Construction Starts Summer 2023, Estimated Completion Winter 2024
